The Chocolate Covered Cherry

Like Christmas in your mouth any time of the year.

When you think about it, it’s pretty great that with some simple variations you can take the classic egg cream recipe to a whole new level. If you haven’t been thinking about it then you’ve obviously got mismatched priorities. Here’s a simple twist that evokes holiday memories all year round by mimicking the flavors of one of our favorite Christmas treats.

Equipment Needed: Pint Glass, Spoon

Serving Suggestion: Individual

Servings: 1

Ingredients:

  • Milk (for richer drinks use higher fat milk, $1.19/QT)
  • Cherry flavored Seltzer ($1/L)
  • Fox’s U-Bet chocolate syrup (about $4/20 oz bottle)
  • 3 ice cubes (free)

Preparation:

  • Add the ice cubes into your pint glass and pour in about 1/2 inch of chocolate syrup. Fill the glass about 3/4 full with seltzer and top it off with milk.

We like to coat the ice cubes to spread things out a bit.

  • Stir the mix thoroughly and give it a sip. It should be more seltzer-y than milky; add more of whatever you need to balance the taste to your liking.

You could also try orange or raspberry-flavored seltzer for a little variety.
